Kolor returned to Paris for its first actual physical clearly show in five years. Designer Junichi Abe was past on the ground in 2017 for men’s for this year, he introduced a a co-ed collection.
In that time, Abe’s models have grow to be additional whimsical and daring, and he’s experimented practically much too intensely with deconstruction and disjointed layering. Again on the runway he kept that path, but pared his tendencies down with less complicated silhouettes.
“I wished a ‘new basic,’ so it was a process of slicing, slicing, reducing – to make items really feel simpler but powerful. It’s ‘new very simple,’ but not minimalism,” he stated backstage immediately after the present.
Nonetheless, he had a bit of fun with the streamlined shapes, adding tulle puff sleeves on attire and applying parachute nylon to make extensive, voluminous skirts that ended up airy and gentle. There were feminine touches in encrusted jewels on tops and pearl necklaces for adult men, straying away from his regular Americana and collegiate codes.
As normally, tailoring was a solid position executed in outerwear. Vibrant shades were applied as a refined touchpoint, to start with opening the assortment in full looks then turning up as a collar or pant cuff afterwards down the line. It was an energetic selection that confirmed Abe is again in motion.
